The Jagged Desktop

Sharp points and angles are the theme of Mahmoud’s desktop. While it’s certainly dramatic, we also love the way he’s customised it to fit his style and his workflow. Here’s how he set everything up.


The Flat N' Fuzzy Desktop

Reader Royale with Cheese loves flat desktops, and so do we. This time around his desktop pays homage to the legendary fuzz pedal, the Big Muff. It’s a simple, flat look that says a lot if you know what to look for. Here’s how it’s all set up.


The Global Monitor Desktop

Windows: Jerome doesn’t have admin rights to his work laptop (which makes sense), but he didn’t want that to stop him from adding a little personality to it. The result is this good-looking, informative, and custom Windows desktop. Here’s how he set it all up.


The Firewatch Desktop

Over on Flickr, Ahmad is pumped for Firewatch, an upcoming game that promises to be amazing. His desktop gives us sunset from a beautifully high vantage point — but it also helps him launch apps and check his system status. Here’s how he set it up.


The San Miguel Desktop

Mac: Reader Kiss Kiss Bang! Bang! wanted to put together a desktop that shows his hometown in all its glory, and we think he’s done just that — it’s stunning. Here’s how he set it up, and how you can put a piece of San Miguel on your desktop too.


The Equaliser Desktop

Flickr user Elizabeth has a great-looking desktop that puts her music front and centre. Plus, it’s really easy to set up. Here’s how she did it.


The Low-Poly Island Desktop

Reader Saifali‘s desktop looks like something out of a pixelated fantasy game, and we love it. Part wallpaper and a few useful widgets, it’s also easy to set up.


The Binary Rain Desktop

Reader Richard‘s desktop is playful and functional, but also has tools on the desktop to help him get right to work when he needs to. Here’s how he set it all up.


The High Orbit Desktop

Flickr user Thomas put this desktop together to celebrate the successful Orion test flight last month. A great, simple wallpaper and a few well-placed skins, and we feel like we’re in orbit too. Here’s how he set it up.


The Limbo Desktop

Reader Jayesh wanted a desktop that was playful, but also helped him get things done. He took his love of Limbo (the game, not the theological concept) and put together this desktop, symbolising the struggle to get things done while simultaneously putting all his tools at his fingertips.
